The home of the one-of-a-kind "Bloody Valentine" tour is Illinois.

There Are Big Expectations For Valentine's Day

When it comes to holidays, for a smaller one like Valentine's Day there are very high expectations. Couples will take it over the top with spending and activities to impress their significant other. The laundry list of "must-haves" includes flowers, candy, jewelry, stuffed animals, date night, dinner, drinks, dessert, dressing up, entertainment, and so much more.

What Rockford Women Really Want For Valentine's Day

The words fancy and expensive are perfect ways to describe your Valentine's Day date night. It adds a lot of unnecessary pressure. This could easily turn a great evening into a disaster very quickly. Couples try to be someone they are not. My suggestion to have a wonderful time is to be yourself. You are almost guaranteed to have fun.


Not All Couples Celebrate Valentine's Day The Same Way

Not all couples enjoy sappy "Rom-Coms" with happy endings. They do not want pretty flowers, sweet treats, and fancy dinners. There are plenty out there who want something with a little more substance.
